​I Am Better Without You

This song is by Everclear and appears on the album Invisible Stars (2012).

Original video
Sometimes I need your sex
Like a junkie needs a hard drug
We are poison to each other
We are like opposites attract on crack

Sometimes you hit me in my sleep
We are poison to each other
We'll never be friends
We are that movie that never ends

You call my house
Wasted late at night
You wanna come over and get in my bed
Maybe you just wanna fight

Please, please, please baby
Leave me alone
I know you blame me
For a not-so-happy home

I cheated on you, you cheated on me
We will never be happy
Until we see each other toothless
And crazy, living on the streets

You call my name
I kind of lose my mind
I just can't help myself
You are my favorite waste of time

You call my name
That crazy pain only you can do
The voice inside, it tells me
I'm better without you

I am better without you
I am better without the shame
Yeah the only thing
I never have said to you
The voice inside it tells me
You are better without me too

I will never admit it to myself
I will never admit it to you

When I hear your name
It takes me back to the day we met
Didn't have to try so hard
Yeah, nothing to forget

I hear your name
I think about the changes we refuse to see
Or the fact that I don't like you
And you don't like me

You call my name
I lose my fucking mind
I kissed my daughter goodnight
I drive to your house and I set myself on fire

You call my name
That crazy pain that only you can do
I will gladly take the blame
If it will make you go away
I know I'm not the only one
That feels this way

My cat doesn't like you
She thinks I'm better without you
Your boyfriend says I'm awesome
He says I'm better without you

All my friends in New York City jail
Tell me, I am better without
All the games you play
I am better without you

Oh, I am better without you
Oh, I am better without the shame
And your friends believe in all
The stupid things you say

I am better without the drama
I am better without you
I am better without you
I am better without all the hate

I don't wanna see your face and
You don't wanna hear my name
We will meet again some day
We will stand there face to face
You will smile at me, I'll smile at you
And we will turn and walk away
